A rooftop bar here would be friggin' amazing. And I'm digging the building as a whole too.

There is a roof-top bar included. See below

Go to this piece in The Improper Bostonian to see some interior renderings that I've never seen before. Very interesting.

As a nod to neighborhood history they should have named it Beaver House.

Yes, discussed up thread. It is a property line wall. So any glass has to be fire rated (i.e. very expensive).

My view (not shown in above pics) shows a few small window openings in the back wall. Otherwise a blank wall with unclear cladding.

Compare this construction to that on Parcels 9 & 10. One is not much like the other, yet both are to be hotels. Amazing.

I dont think so. To have real glass windows you can use it would have to be the expensive stuff with a fire wall as the next wall. To just put tinted glass over the blank wall would be fine as the wall is the fire rating. Its just a cladding over the fire wall at that point just like the alucobond its fine as long as the windows are not functional. They need to do this more here you see it in other cities and theres nothing wrong with it besides a little dark at night... but a few findows so not completely. Id much rather have dummy glass than a blank wall. I think alucobond is going up here early renders were tree house-esque, not sure now, I really hope so.

There are definitely cutouts in the back wall. Not sure what they would be if not small windows.

The view from the rooftop bar here is going to be insane.

Yea most “blank walls” are not 100% windowless. It should be a combo of this:








And this:
Its changed since then, but it could still be checkered alcubond on the back side. There are no current renders but Id guess its close.
